    Hi there,

    Could you please let us know what version of Rhino are you using?
    Please note that we haven’t updated Rabbit in a while, so it currently doesn’t work with Rhino 6.

    Thanks for your kindly sharing! It helps me a lot!
    However, I have a question about the boundary of the cell grids.
    I mean, I there any way to control the wrapping?
    Because wrapping can be switched off though to prevent flying geometries, when stacking individual game generations to produce a three-dimensional Game of Life in recording mode.

    Hello Jason,

    We are glad to hear that Rabbit is useful to you! Unfortunately, there isn’t an option to control the wrapping. A workaround is to create larger grids so that the cells don’t “fall” out of the boundary.

    If you are into coding you can have a look at the source code and try to customize the plugin to your needs:

    Hello there,

    Thank you for your interest in Rabbit!

    We will likely update Rabbit to work with Rhino 6 in the future. Currently, we do not have an exact date, but we will keep you posted.

    Please note that Rabbit is open-source, so you can fork the repository and adapt it to your needs:

    I followed all the steps as well and it still doesn’t show up in my toolbars. I am using Rhino 5 that I have just downloaded and installed today, along with the latest version of grasshopper. Any potential leads on why am I having trouble?

    Hi there, thanks for informing regarding compatibility with Rhino 6 . Wanted to ask is Rabbit available for Rhino 6 now ? Thanks

  8. Rajitha Jayasekera says:


    Is there a compatible version for Rhino6 available yet? If not, are there any simillar plugins that can be used to achieve the same this?

  9. says:

    The “Turtle” function has a runtime error that I can’t seem to fix on Macintosh. It says a file is missing. Is it incompatible with Rhino 7, or Mac?

    Just a piece of useful information. Rabbit works with Rhino 6 and 7 grasshopper version 1.0.0007. Just follow the instruction above and very important, if the Rabbit plug-in doesn’t show in Grasshopper, right-click on the Rabbit.gha file in the appointed folder and click on properties and check the unblock box in the general tap.
